    Lee Dorman died Friday morning.


    Orange County sheriff's spokeswoman Gail Krause says that Dorman may have been enroute to a doctor when he died.

    Iron Butterfly's iconic album In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida was one of the first rock albums I bought during the early 70s. It contrasted somewhat with my collection of classical music albums like those of Beethoven's symphonies. :biggrin:

    The eponymous main track, In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida, was a great tune with Dorman's bass line with Erik Brann's lead guitar, Doug Ingle's organ, and Ron Bushy's drums. Bushy's solo became a classic and inspired many drummers.

    I guess he's In a Gadda Da Vida now. RIP.
